    I find it ironic that this is an issue, but 3,000 dying in New York City wasn't an issue for Bushes reelection.

    Benghazi - The last ditch effort from a desperate, defeated, & weakened GOP still upset over losing twice to the black guy...

    @Dan_Tien I'm not a Hilary fan. I won't be voting for her but for the GOP to cry age on Hilary is out and out hypocrisy.

    The Democrats insisted Reagan was tool old. But what the Democrats need to concern themselves with isn't Hillary's health (although 4 years is a long time). They need to concern themselves with her appearance and her voice. Like it or not, thanks to television a candidates physical appearance is profoundly important and Hillary is no longer attractive. That will be worse in four years. But most important is the way she will sound while giving speeches. Hillary is shrill. Her voice is grating. Hillary reminds me of the elementary school principal who walked the halls with her fisted clenched. To this day I wonder if they relaxed when she got home from work. We called her the Battle ax. Any attempt to soften Hillary for the campaign will go down in flames. Battle ax is who she is.

    @mtkopf Well, I have seen a few photos, very carefully done with professional hair and makeup, where she did look good, for a moment anyway. They were likely airbrushed too. Frankly, as a woman, I have never been impressed with Bill's taste. Monica was likely more attractive to him for what she was willing to do.

    Every quality you mentioned is irrelevant to her doing her job, and running for president isn't a beauty pageant. McCain fits every quality you mentioned and nobody said a word. But please, let's hope the GOP makes an issue of it, because they will turn SO many women away from their campaign for whoever they run, and create the same sm for them as well.

    Not too old, but too mental. What kind of idiot country would elect somebody like that? Oh yeah I forgot, Obama's in the White House. If this country managed to vote him in, then all hope is gone!

    Will America really want the Democrats in charge for another four years after Obama is done? Hillary would be more of the same policies and bumbling, all dressed up in another "novelty" outfit, a female this time, and the only difference between the two.

    Lisa?????? Little gop attack going as usual for the Politix women writers?

    Where did they mention her age? They are basically saying shes an old part of the burnout hippy generation- aka the Worst Generation.

    "The idea that we're at the end of her generation and that it's time for another to step forward is certainly going to be compelling,"

    Again- where was age mentioned?

    Your misogyny is showing,@drpeeper. The NY Times made Hillary's age the focus of their story in Sunday's paper. Here's the key quote:

    "The 2016 election may be far off, but one theme is becoming clear: Republican strategists and presidential hopefuls, in ways subtle and overt, are eager to focus a spotlight on Mrs. Clinton's age. The former secretary of state will be 69 by the next presidential election, a generation removed from most of the possible Republican candidates."

    The Politix writers are doing a great job. If I have any nit to pick, it's that they give too much attention to conservative views that should be ignored. You should read this Times article ( http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/30/us/politics... ), admit you are wrong and apologize to them.

    @Newsdoctor was it misogyny when these same papers questioned if Reagan, Dole and McCain were too old for the job? Questioning Hillary's age is called equal treatment.

    Actually I voted it is an issue. I would have voted for her in 08. Her age could change that for me in 16. However, I wonder if the same republicans complaining now about age think it's much of an issue for Mitch McConnell who is 6 years her senior? Probably not.

    @frigginhell The list of congressmen and women of both parties who are 70 or older is disturbing. I wouldn't trust them to drive to the bingo hall without running someone down on the road how can I trust them to run the country?
  • #27

    @frigginhell I agree. I am also all for term limits on every elected office.

    As for not trusting them to drive, I'm sure they have all made enough money from insider trading that they can hire a full time chauffeur.

    We mercilessly beat on John McCain because of his age. To expect anything less from the Republicans would be short sighted. The main diference in my opinion though is that McCain was still living in the past as well. Hillary is older, but also more modern than most Republican candidiates.

    Reagan was our oldest President, just shy of 70, when he took office and he is a Republican golden child. I'm sure the Dems will remind people of that fact.

    I didn't "beat up" on John McCain for his age... but I was shocked the fact that in 2008 he admitted he doesn't use email and really doesn't even use the internet (he has other people do it for him)- that is a pretty big generational divide. Here is his direct quotation

    They [family? staff?] go on for me. I am learning to get online myself, and I will have that down fairly soon, getting on myself.
    I don't expect to be a great communicator, I don't expect to set up my own blog, but I am becoming computer literate to the point where I can get the information that I need - including going to my daughter's blog first, before anything else.

    @Pragmatist The generational divide is more what I meant too. But that becomes "old" easily enough. Nearly every comedian (the "media elite") out there made old jokes about him. His age was something that came up in every political discussion I had it seemed.

    Age is an issue. With age comes experience and wisdom. Although some do better than others, the 69 year old version of Ms. Rodham is better than the 61 year old version.

    I almost forgot about the clinton close associate (from the White water scandal)that died under suspicious circumstances.

    I'm not a fan of Clinton but age should have nothing to do with eligibility. Let the people vote and decide if she is capable. Everyone is different and some people function very well even better then many younger people well beyond there 90s.

    I'm not worried about her age but if falling down and bumping her head becomes a pattern causing her to forget too much. On second thought don't worry her Vice President Slick Willie will help her out.

    I think she would have been a good candidate...but...Obama ruined her. Clinton chose to protect Obama in stead of being honest to the American people. She lied about Benghazi, and that destroyed her in many people,s hearts!
